  2. Audio tour Summary

    After a severe storm surge in the future, the elevated water table has turned the Hirshhorn Sculpture Garden into a marsh habitat. The sunken garden has been colonized with new cacophonous forms of life, making trouble for the garden’s caretaker who maintains the sculptures amid the destabilizing changes.

    Join the caretaker on this GPS-located fictional audio story that overlays the presently well-groomed Sculpture Garden with the dissonant sounds of future disruption.

    SEEP debuted at the DC Listening Lounge Sound Scene X at the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden on July 8, 2017.
